Area man faces numerous charges

Authorities have accused a North Liberty man of possessing a firearm and fleeing from police.

Keylynn Rogers, 28, was charged Nov. 14 with dominion/control of a firearm by a felon, driving while barred, driving with a denied/revoked license, interference with official acts, and child endangerment.

According to the arrest affidavit, Rogers was stopped for a minor traffic violation while driving his brother’s car. Rogers initially told officers that he didn’t have any identification on him, then provided officers with his brother’s identification. Rogers admitted to having a warrant out for his arrest.

When Rogers was asked to step out of the vehicle, the affidavit said, he began running away from the scene despite officers instructing him to stop. Rogers’ 4-year-old son was in the vehicle, where officers found open containers of alcohol and a small-caliber handgun.

Dominion/control of a firearm by a felon is a Class-D felony.
